This song reached #2 in 1979, held of the top spot by Dr Hook. This was the first single taken from their album "The Game" their only #1 album in the USA, this was one of only 2 number 1 singles in the USA as well.
For me as a huge Queen fan I just liked how their sound developed from album to album.
I really liked Marmalade in the 60's, but for me this is their best song by some distance. Every time I listen to this it makes me reflect on my life. It's probably the song that will be played when I leave this planet.
It spent 3 weeks at number 3 behind Edison Lighthouse & Rolf Harris in 1970.
Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel - Make Me Smile(Come Up And see Me)
I have always liked Steve Harley's singing voice (to some an acquired taste), this was actually #1 in 1975 when I had my first driving lesson, so has a special memory for me, plus it's just a great song.
A #5 song from 1978, this was on their album "Parallel Lines" which I bought on release, still have it today. Although this is a cover of a Nerves song, they just make it their's. Just love the vocal's on this.
